Department of Computer Science & Engineering (CSE)
Dr. Md. Abul Kalam has been working in the department of Physics at National Institute of Textile Engineering and Research (NITER) which is a constituent institute of University of Dhaka since 1 January, 2019. He is actively servicing in this institute as an assistant professor since 1 September, 2019. Besides teaching, he is very much enthusiastic about expanding his research skills. His research interest include nanomaterials especially carbon nanotubes (CNTs) synthesis using plasma technology, cellulose nanofiber, nanocomposite, nanobiocomposite, polymer composite production and their characterization, experimental and theoretical study of transport phenomena, material-environment interfaces.
He obtained his Ph.D degree in 2018 from Shizuoka University, Japan on Optoelectronics and Nanostructure Sciences. He completed his B. Sc. in Physics from the department Physics in 2009 (exam held in 2011) and M. Sc. in Theoretical Physics from the department of Theoretical Physics in 2010 (exam held in 2012) of the University of Dhaka. His M. S thesis title was “Atomic Transport Properties of In0.5Bi0.5 Alloys at Different Thermodynamic
State”. After completing M.
Sc. he joined as a lecturer in the department of Physics at Cambrian College,
Dhaka. Later in October, 2014 he went to Japan for pursuing Ph.D with Shizuoka
University Environment Leadership (ELSU) Scholarship. His Ph.D dissertation
title was “Study of the bipolar pulsed arc discharge method for the
efficient production of single wall carbon nanotubes.”
